Latest news and updates from June

We have moved into our new house! Thanks to everyone who sent cards or good wishes by e-mail – it means a lot 🙂

I finally have my new craft room, although it’s currently full of boxes and needs a lot of organising. I have so many ideas for it, but the whole house needs to be set up so I can’t devote too much time to it… yet…

But I have managed to keep one little corner neat and calm and it makes me happy to look at it:

My wire and FIMO bonsai sakura tree, some polymer clay stones I made and some real stones, and my kawaii Hidamari no Tami who waves his head from side to side in sunlight. How cute is that?

    Do you make these yourself? That absolutely cute pink smily character I would love . Do you also sell them?

    Thank you in advance,
    Lisa Gomez

      Lisa, I made the tree and the rocks, but the pink character is called a ‘Hidamari no Tami’ and it’s made by Tomy (Japan). You can find them to buy online or from stores that import cute Asian stuff!
